Well Honestly I Don't K...

Well honestly I don't know that it's a mental illness exactly, but I was diagnosed with severe depression a little over a year ago. Even though I've been suffering from it for a lot longer then that. I just never bothered to go and get any help.

That's a mental illness kiddo!

Lord yes, depression is a mental illness! I've had to fight back a number of times. Hon, don't let anybody tell you it isn't, and don't let anyone try to get you to 'shake it off,' or 'snap out of it.' Depression is as real an illness as, say, diabetes or cancer. And only now are people getting the help they so desparately need.
